Can't text or call abroad


I've recently joined EE with a Samsung galaxy s8. I'm not in Germany and aware that I can use my allowance at no extra cost Whilst I'm here.

Unfortunately, I can't send texts and make calls. I can receive texts, but haven't tried receiving a call yet. 


I've already tried doing a manual network search and switched from telekom.de to E-plus. This doesn't seem to have changed anything.

Hi @AlexMassey.


Welcome to the community.


I hope you're having a great time in Germany. I had a weekend in Dusseldorf a couple of weeks ago and absolutely loved it.


Could you try doing a test call to a UK number adding +44 or 0044 replacing the 0 at the beginning?


Let me know how you get on.


Chris 🙂
